    Grond was imbued with magical spells to break through Gondor's magically sealed gates.

    Best defense against Grond would be offense. Demolish bridges and flood land used for its approach. Harrass the supply lines needed to keep Grond's draft animals fed.

        >GROND can't move for a month while Sauron's evil woodsmen have to seek out, hew, and craft replacement timbers sturdy enough to support his wicked BULK.

    A few ditches and/or earth embankments would at least severely slow it down

    Just build your fortifications on a hill or slope. That thing would barely get uphill at all, much less work effectively with its swinging pendulum mechanism.

        Galadriel's hair has the light of the two trees in it, which is like, the reflected light of God/Eru. So her hair, or the Phial she gives Sam, have mystical power to defeat evil and bring courage in those who hold it

        I'm not a coomer on this, this is the actual story beats from Tolkien

            Wait i thought Gimli got the three strands of hair? It was like a whole thing in the books, wasn't it? He pledges to set it in crystal or something as a renewed bond between dorfs and elves.

            Frodo got the phial, Sam picked it up after Frodo got SHELOB'D.
            Sam got elf-rope, the soil, and a mallorn seed.
            Galadriel didn't know what to give Gimli, he asked for a single strand of her hair, and she gave him three.
            Legolas got a b***hin' elf-hair bow.
            Aragorn got the Elfstone and a sheath for Anduril.
            Boromir got a golden belt.
            Merry and Pippin got silver belts.
            Everyone got lembas, elf-cloaks, elf-brooches, and boats.

          Sometimes it's doing some insane shit as fast as possible. Like eating your enemy so you don't starve.

    Any fortified position with machine guns, grenade launchers and mortars will do.

      >"One Grond can beat two Gondorian gates!"
      Two Gondorian gates sally forth. They disappear into the trench, but all is silent.
      >"One Grond can beat ten Gondorian gates!"
      Ten Gondorian gates sally forth. There is a small scuffle, then all is silent.
      >"One Grond can beat fifty Gondorian gates!"
      Fifty Gondorian gates sally forth. There is a longer fight, and one half-broken Gondorian gate drags itself back. "Sire, 'tis a trap!", it says, "There are two Gronds!"

    Deep mud, a moat, or a series of ditches. Grond can't smash a door it can't get to. A steep hill would also work rather well

    Just focus it with trebs and eventually you'll break off one of the chains which will render it useless.
